Light & Darkness

A major exhibition exploring luminosity, colour, movement, race and politics across three decades of late modernism. Uniting 70 artworks from the University of Sydney’s Power Collection, it spans the luminal, op and kinetic works of the 1960s by major artists such as Jean Tinguely and Bridget Riley; the political and conceptual art of the 1970s with Ed Kienholtz, Joseph Beuys and On Kawara; and Australian and New Zealander artists in the 1980s, including Peter Tyndall, Jenny Watson and Colin McCahon. The exhibition and accompanying book are the first projects from the University’s extensive collection of international contemporary art in its new home at the Chau Chak Wing Museum.
